I have a 20 gallon high also that has a few tetra and guppies and a baby bristlenose pleco, but the tank is divided with kenyi fry on the othe side. Can a catfish hang out with fry?
No, if they fit in his mouth, he'll eat them.

I'm glad to hear you are doing your best.

im not an expert with thease guys but i know oscars and larger plecos do better when theres nothing sharp in the tank cause they are a bit clumsy, that looks like hes run into sumthing to me but that wouldnt explain the others...

Im not sure. Ive had him for 6 or 7 months and I have never seen anything like that on him before. He is still active and eating well, but seems to prefer a portion of the tank he doesnt normally hang out in. Hmmm...
